The 5 Biggest UCAT Myths

Myth #1: You can’t study for itPeople call the UCAT many different things. Is it an IQ test? A personality test? In reality, it is about applying skills you have developed to solve problems. People say: “you’ve either got it or you don’t,” but like any skill, UCAT technique can be practiced and honed. One of my close friends is one of the naturally brightest people I know.

UCAT Speed Reading Trainer Launched!

When sitting the UCAT, you will have an average of less than 30 seconds to answer each question. Therefore, increasing your reading speed is an essential skill to develop, particularly in the Verbal Reasoning subtest. Two common causes of slow reading include subvocalization (or reading words aloud in your mind) and reading each word individually. To read quickly, you need to avoid subvocalization, and engage in ‘chunking’, which involves reading multiple words simultaneously. MedEntry has developed an exclusive UCAT Speed Reading trainer that helps you to reduce subvocalization, helps you ‘chunk’ and significantly increases your reading speed.You can set the number of words...

Planning time for UCAT preparation

A very common question asked by aspiring medical students is “How do you balance your school work and UCAT practice?” Given that UCAT can be equally or even more important than ATAR in the medical school selection process, it is crucial that students devote sufficient time in preparing for the UCAT, without neglecting their high school or university.The key to finding this balance is planning your time. Many students attempt to fit in UCAT study in their ‘spare time’, which is hard to find the final year of schooling. It is more productive to set aside blocks of time which are specifically...
